NaNoWriMo is upon us once again, and it’s the perfect time to direct you to my article from last year entitled, Why I Will Never Participate in NeNoWriMo.
“The annual month-long writing event, better known as NaNoWriMo, challenges authors to write 50,000 words by the end of the month. This contest is quite popular and has helped launch careers of some authors as they ended up publishing the novel they wrote during NaNoWriMo.
“NaNoWriMo promotes discipline, dedication, and perseverance to the craft of writing as authors must maintain a daily word count of 1,667 words a day for 30 days in order to complete 50,000 words by December 1st.
“Although the idea of the project is fantastic, its timing isn’t. And it has nothing to do with it being football season . . . although that argument can reasonably be made.”
